Do you want to do handwork or just use your machine? Visit your local quilt/sewing shops. They usually know of or host groups. It's good to get into a supportive groups. Though I have sewed for years and pieced many a baby quilt in my time, I wanted to make a detailed applique quilt. I joined a year-long class and have a beautiful quilt that is not yet quilted. It's being hand quilted by me. Start small. Work up to something bigger.
